Panthers set Fan Fest at Bank of America Stadium for Aug. 3

After one week in Spartanburg this summer, the Panthers will return home to Bank of America Stadium for Fan Fest 2013 on Saturday, Aug. 3, the team announced on its Twitter account Friday.

Fan Fest will have games for kids as well as entertainment opportunities around the stadium. Gates will open at 2 p.m. The team will also host a scrimmage on the field.

Last year's Fan Fest drew an announced crowd of 22,070, the largest for the event since 1996.

After a scrimmage in which the score is unlikely to be kept, players will sign autographs for fans.

The Panthers will return to Spartanburg the following Monday for a few days before making their way back to Charlotte to play their first preseason game against the Chicago Bears on Friday, Aug. 9.

Players didn't stay last year and sign autographs. My kids were disappointed

Last year they had a mid-week open practice at the stadium, was pretty cool. Any word on if they're doing that again this year?

Yeah my kids were disappointed also. I'm going again this year and let's just hope the players know fans put bread on the table. Go PANTHERS!!!!!

Probably Cams idea not to sign autographs. Didn't want to cheapen the value of the signing he did at South Park mall

Low blow Jimcat.....i believe the money raised at Cam's southpark autograph session was given to charity

As a proud Panther fan...if you attend training camp, mid-wk open practice at the stadium, you would know Cam stays for autographs and at times has been the last player off the field.

It doesn't matter if they sign autographs or not. I just want to be there to support my team. Any true fan should feel the same.
